3. Course contents *

The simultaneous interpreting technique is gradually taught, building on the skills that were acquired during the consecutive interpreting courses in semester 1:

a. shadowing; 
b. closing; 
c. simultaneous interpreting EN-NL of general speeches, during which the complexity level and the pace are gradually increased. 

Exercises/speeches deal with various topics (improvised speeches, written speeches or recordings of real-life speeches). Students are also encouraged to prepare speeches.
